Description

The Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto is an iconic location – thousands of bright vermilion torii gates lead visitors into a sacred forest, devoted to the Shinto deity Inari. Wandering the beautiful forest trail here is an unforgettable experience, and a must-do for anyone visiting Kyoto. Follow up your visit with a trip to the Fushimi sake district, where you'll be able to get a real taste of Japanese culture.

In a small group of approximately nine people, you'll be able to really experience the tranquility and beauty of Fushimi Inari. Let your guide take you through the vermilion gates on Mount Inari, and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this special place.

Once you've crossed the shrine off your Japan bucket list, it's time for another unforgettable experience. You'll be taken to the nearby sake district, where local experts will show you their craft.

Finish up with a tasting session – select three sake samples from over 80 different varieties, and become more familiar with this famous Japanese product. By the end of the day, you'll have seen one of Japan's most iconic shrines, gained insight into a national spirit, and made some truly precious memories.

Insider tip

While you're in Fushimi, be sure to eat some of the local specialties. Try the sweet inari sushi and famous kitsune udon ('fox udon'), believed to be a favorite dish of Inari's messengers, foxes.
